To get some insight into the hydration mechanisms of homologousdisaccharides, we report measurements on trehalose, maltose, and sucroseaqueous solutions. The interest on these systems is mainly due to theextraordinary properties of disaccharides and especially of trehalose, themost effective bio-protector against freezing and dehydration. To carry outthis… CONTINUE READING
